Queen’s University and St. Lawrence College are collaborating to offer a Joint Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree/Diploma in Biotechnology. Students in the Biotechnology Specialization Plan at Queen’s can earn credit towards the Biotechnology Diploma at St. Lawrence, and vice versa.
Students may transfer academic credits between the two institutions, resulting in the accelerated completion of both programs (a 4 year BScH in Biology, specialization in biotechnology and a 3 year Advanced Diploma in Biotechnology) in just 5 years. Students can start the Degree/Diploma at either institution, and will spend between 2.5-3.5 years at Queen’s, with the remaining time at St. Lawrence. The Bachelor of Science (Honours) Biotechnology Specialization will also be available as a stand-alone four-year degree program for Queen’s students.
